The feed to ball mills is typically 75 vol. % ore and 25% steel. The ball mill is operated in closed circuit with a particle size measurement device and size control cyclones. The cyclones send correct size material on to flotation and direct oversize material back to the ball mill for further grinding.
A ball mill is a type of grinder used to grind or blend materials for use in mineral dressing processes, paints, pyrotechnics, ceramics, and selective laser sintering. It works on the principle of impact and attrition: size reduction is done by impact as the balls drop from near the top of the shell. A ball mill consists of a hollow cylindrical shell rotating about its axis. The axis of the shell may be either horizontal or at a small angle to the horizontal. It is partially filled with balls. T

Ball Mill and Grinding Circuit Start up Sequence. Put sump pump into AUTO. Start ball mill lubrication system. Open air valves to the cyclones and the cylinder operated valves at the Cyclone feed pumpbox. Open barren solution isolation valves to cyclone feed pumpbox. Open barren solution shut off valve to ball mill.
Ball Mill Operation. Ball mills ride on steel tires or supported on both ends by trunnions. Girth gears bolted to the shell drive the mill through a pinion shaft from a prime mover drive. The prime movers are usually synchronized motors. During rotation, a portion of the charge is lifted along the inside perimeter.
The ball milling process is carried out for approximately 100150 h to obtain uniform sized fine powder. In high energy ball milling, vacuum or a specific gaseous atmosphere is maintained inside the chamber. High energy mills are classified into attrition ball mills, planetary ball mills, vibrating ball mills, and low energy tumbling mills. In high energy ball milling, formation of ceramic nano reinforcement by in situ reaction is possible.
